Salomon Wanderer 25

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Just an overpriced schoolbag. Since before I started hiking I had two backpacks made from a company that specializes in motorbike backpacks and luggage. I used (and use) them everywhere and never had any problems whatsoever, although now and then I had a few comments from fellow hikers that I need to buy a backpack from a "proper" mountaineering brand. So I gave in and bought Wanderer 25 from Salomon as a replacement for my 25L daypack in promise of separate hydration bladder compartment and the… Full review

L.L.Bean Trail Model Hunting Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars I love this pack! I use it for day hiking and snowshoeing, and I carry lots of stuff in my day pack (first aid, emergency gear, dog supplies, extra clothes), and often attach snowshoes to the exterior. It is not fancy, and does not have all the bells and whistles (i.e. specialty pockets, laptop sleeves), but I have found it to be extremely comfortable, and certainly meets my need for a highly visibility pack. First, a disclosure...I am not a hunter. But I am certainly glad I peruse the hunting specialty… Full review

Black Diamond Speed 30

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I bought this pack a year and a half ago, and it has served me well through daily hiking and camping use, canoe trips, and multi-pitch climbing. In one word: fantastic! I bought this pack a year and a half ago, and it has served me well through daily hiking and camping use, canoe trips, and multi-pitch climbing. It fits well to my back, and tightens on well enough that it doesn't bounce around when I run. It's been durable, and seems like it will last a good while longer as well. It has a top pouch… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Fluid 18

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very lightweight and sleek pack perfect for day hikes, especially in tight bush. I bought this pack to replace my old Asolo light day pack. I use two different day packs depending on the circumstances, my other is a North Face Terra 40. This pack is the first one I have tried that is made of the newer, thinner nylon, altough it is still thicker than the thinnest stuff they use. I have been using this pack weekly for close to 6 months now, although it was bought about a year ago. My first impression… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Scrambler 30 OutDry

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This backpack is a great day hike bag, for use in wet or dry climates, keeping your stuff dry. No frills design looks clean and is super functional. I got this bag a few weeks ago and have taken it sea kayaking, hiking, running, and climbing.  The waterproofness worked great while it was stowed in my sea kayak and kept all my stuff dry. My dry bags that I normally use for kayaking were back in the States, but I didn't need them with this backpack!  Taking this bag hiking is a nice no-frills, cleanly… Full review

The North Face Diad Pro 22

rated 4 of 5 stars The North Face Diad Pro 22 is a handy little pack that's perfect for day hikes, or even a minimalist overnight trip. Its list of features make it seem a lot bigger than it is. I'm somewhat lacking in small backpacks for three-season day hiking, my MH Snowtastic 28 is really pretty heavy for its capacity and my next larger pack is way too big, so when I saw the TNF Diad Pro 22 for $24 on S&C I scooped it up. When it arrived I unwrapped it and was really surprised by how light it was. TNF says… Full review

Lost Creek Flint Ridge

rated 5 of 5 stars Lost Creek's Flint Ridge is an 8L, durable cave pack for those needing to travel fast and light through tight passages. While this pack is limited in size, it is ideal for shorter trips. Having used this pack for 15 years, I have no doubt about its durability. Lost Creek is a cottage manufacture of caving gear that has seen three different owners since the 1970's. Each generation of owners seems to have improved upon the original Lost Creek pack. The current owners at Seven Bends continue the tradition… Full review

Lost Creek Monster TAG

rated 5 of 5 stars Lost Creek's Monster TAG pack is a 22L, virtually indestructible cave pack that has stood the test of time. This is an exceptionally large cave pack for those carrying vertical gear, camera equipment, or group gear. Lost Creek is a cottage manufacture of caving gear that has seen three different owners since the 1970s. Each generation of owners seems to have improved upon the original Lost Creek pack. The current owners at Seven Bends continue the tradition of building nearly indestructible cave… Full review

Gregory Salvo 28

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Gregory Salvo 28 liter backpack is, quite simply, an awesome, well designed backpack, featuring great suspension and a ventilation system that actually works. It's perfect for long day hikes with room for all the gear you'd need for pretty much any adventure. I have to admit, when I look at daypacks, one of my top priorities is lots of pockets, cubby holes, and other ways to sort and store my gear. Perhaps it's because I carry lots of stuff—even when out on day hikes—and I like to be able… Full review
